“This is the big question. We are currently asking the community to refresh our strategic plan for the city, Future Melbourne.

Future Melbourne will set the direction for our city and the work City of Melbourne undertakes out to 2026. That’s big stuff. Don’t leave it to chance.

Do you want to see Melbourne as the nation’s electric vehicle capital? A solar powered tram? Melbourne’ very own High Line Park? What about a rooftop farm?

Sign up now to Future Melbourne to submit your big, bright, sustainable idea. You can also vote for other people’s project ideas. The most popular ones will be considered for implementation by a citizen’s jury, Future Melbourne Ambassadors and Council.
